​How to Fix a Fence Post using a Concrete Fence Repair Spur

Need to stabilise a wobbly fence quickly and effectively? Ensure it's done easily and stays secure for a long time to come by using a concrete repair spur on each post.

1. Getting started
Concrete Fence Repair Spur means that rather than replacing a whole fence or post you can support it from one side of the fence, thus keeping it solid and secure. First thing to do is clear the space around the wobbly fence post so you have access to the surrounding ground (this could mean clearing away bushes or other plants).

2. Dig down
Start digging a hole around the fence post. Ensure the hole is around half the depth of the spur so that it sits flush to the fence post that needs supporting. If there's concrete this will need chipping away. Tip: give the newly-exposed post a coat of wood treatment to ensure it's protected for even longer.

3. Put the post in place
Ensure the fence post is vertically straight using a spirit level. Drill the holes in the corresponding places on the post and then hold the spur in position next to the post, before drilling in the first coach screw at the top of the spur. This will go through both the spur and into the fence post to ensure it's as stable as possible. Check it's straight again and then drill in the other screws, holding it steady all the time.

4. Securing the spur
Check both the spur and post are straight before putting the Post Mix in the hole (follow the instructions on the packet or here to gauge amounts) and mix with water. This is a quick job and also sets quickly. Once it's set solid, you can cover with plants or other foliage, sit back and enjoy a solid and secure fence.
